in 2020. The Portuguese forward established himself as an important player for Jurgen Klopp’s team at the start of the season. However, he suffered an unfortunate injury that delayed his plans to become a regular starter at Anfield. Ahead of his side’s Champions League battle against

Real Madrid

on Tuesday, Jota has spoken about linking up with the Reds’ attacking trio.

He told

BT Sport


“Obviously the world was talking about them (the front three) because of the achievements of the team in general, so they can shine because they are the attacking trio.

“But then it's up to the manager to decide who will play, the system we will use. For example, the last game we changed the system, we played all four. So things can happen, we can play different systems.”

Jota has featured in 22 matches for Liverpool across all competitions, scoring 12 goals and providing one assist.

“The manager decides what is best for the team and as individuals we need to do our best on the pitch.

“In the box, I don't like to do too many things. If the objective is to score goals in the football game, that's what I want to do.

“In terms of me scoring or providing or dragging defenders, if that's the target, that's what I want to do.”

After their match against the Blancos, Liverpool will face

Aston Villa

in their next Premier League match on Saturday.
